My only experience with oolong teas has been black oolong tea. To be honest, I didn’t know there were any other types. It seems silly that I thought that now, but I clearly still have a lot to learn about teas!
This tea is very delicate, when it brews it is a light caramel color and has a very delicate flavor. Other oolongs I’ve had have had a much richer, roasted and in some cases smoky flavor. I drank this tea straight with no sweetener or cream. I really enjoyed the mild flavor. I like that green tea is lower in caffeine than black tea, so I don’t feel bad drinking it. When I tried an oolong tea awhile back, I looked into the health benefits and was blown away. Oolong can help with weight management, dental health, and even certain skin conditions. Plus it has tons of minerals in it. I would drink it more often except for the caffeine content. But I feel okay about having the occasional cup of green oolong.
This would be a great afternoon pick me up tea, or great to have with or after a meal. The delicate flavor won’t get in the way of anything you might be eating.
If you like green tea, I say give this soothing delicious tea a try and get those amazing health benefits!!
